I met another VA for coffee a few weeks back and she was bemoaning the fact that despite putting hours and hours into her marketing she gets very little return – in fact, she admitted that per week she spends at least 10 hours on networking meetings, and then on top of that she had perhaps another 5 hours on social media and never had any time at all to write fresh blog posts. Her social media time management was out of control!
I looked a bit puzzled.
I don’t spend anything like that amount of time on marketing my business. I’ve always thought that being organised is actually an advanced form of laziness and have accordingly adjusted my activities to suit… So how do you figure out where to put the effort in? And what are the biggest timewasters?
